An Oregon subcontractor agreement is a legal document a contractor and subcontractor use to outline the rights and responsibilities of both parties on a construction job. It defines the work the subcontractor must complete, the due date for the tasks, how much the contractor will pay the subcontractor, and requirements like transportation and insurance.
Sometimes, a general contractor will accept a job they don’t have all the skills to complete. In that case, the contractor hires subcontractors with specialized skills to complete a portion of the project.
“‘Subcontractor’ means a person that contracts with a contractor or another subcontractor on predetermined terms to be responsible for performing all or part of a job of construction in accordance with established specifications or plans.”
